Construction in Progress. A pipeline construction project looks much like a moving assembly line. A large project typically is broken into manageable lengths called “spreads.” Every spreads may be 30 -100 miles in length and utilizes highly specialized and qualified workgroups.Each spread is composed of various crews, each with its own responsibilities. The tasks includes:
1. Steps in the constructions process.
2. Clearing, grading and trenching.
3. Stringing and welding pipe segments together
4. Depositing the pipeline, backfilling and testing
